Like "Gentlemen" a lot... The mosaic and the strong lines really make the type stand out...

Nice set Peter, 'Gentlemen' catches my eye as well.

Very imaginative take on the 'Gentlemen' image, I certainly wouldn't have thought of framing it like that but it works really well. I also really like your 'will you marry me' image which isn't shown in this set!

It is more than 2 years since the Sheffield meet where we had a walk round Park Hill flats, so it was interesting to visit the exhibition linked below last Saturday.

I think the exhibition subjects bettered ours because there were residents in the works of Stephenson and Mayne - worth looking in.

I was really trying to say (to the Sheffield crowd and others), if you happen to be near Park Hill flats with a free moment, you might find it interesting as I did to look in on this exhibition.

Best approached from the Duke Street side, the exhibition is in the converted garage block.
Admission is free and as well as the photographs, it was interesting to loiter near other visitors and listen to their tales of Park Hill and Hyde Park.

A Guardian review is here:

The rather opportunistic Thornbridge Brewery have a 7% fruit beer called "Love Among the Ruins" on tap at the moment. That is the name of the current exhibition at Park Hill flats.

They have also in the last couple of years marketed a beer called "I Love You - Will You Marry Me" which was the graffiti message I featured in the Sheffield based one lens challenge referred to up-thread.

Has anyone visited the exhibition?

Hi Peter

Not had time to visit this, but I might be able to squeeze it in during this coming weekend, wife permitting. I'll post a reply if I do get down there. Will take a camera and lens in case anything interesting crops up.
